    HP dv7t quad. Same identifier as the solution listed above. I did not quote to save space. Followed step by step and it doesn't work. I'm using gnome and 10.10.

    Tested and this works perfectly on my Asus eeePC 1001p. I was wondering though if you could change it so the 2 finger tap emulated a middle click instead of a right click.

    It worked for me for a short while, but after either standby or reboot it seems to have failed. I re-followed the steps, but found all the settings exactly as they were. The mouse just "wigs out" and jumps all over when I try it now.

    Running Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 on an Asus 1101HA, or, the netbook that should run linux fantastically but is actually the linux-netbook from hell.

    Same problem here, all of sudden with an EEE PC 1001P. I did a fresh install yesterday but this fix worked for weeks before that!?

    Yep--ptosiani's solution stops working after I suspend/reboot my computer (eeePC 1001P). In this earlier thread, lores suggests making a script that runs on startup, (and making a shortcut icon, as that won't work after suspend).

    Here's more detailed instructions (for 10.04 but I assume it'll work for 10.10 too).

    1. Install "Pointing Devices"

    2. Open System / Preferences / Pointing Devices and disable Vertical and Horizontal Scrolling.

    3. Open a terminal (ctrl + alt + t) and execute this commands:
    Code:
    synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=1
    synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1
    synclient EmulateTwoFingerMinZ=40 
    synclient EmulateTwoFingerMinW=8
    4.Open a terminal (ctrl + alt + t) and execute this commands:
    Code:
    gconf-editor
    5. Navigate and find this key: /desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/scroll_method

    6. Assign the value '2'

    7.Open a terminal (ctrl + alt + t) and execute this commands:
    Code:
    cat /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
    8. Copy the Identifier name, in my case, it was "Touchpad catchall"
    Code:
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    9. Execute this command, as a Super User.
    Code:
    sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-twofingerscroll.conf
    10. Write this, making sure to put your Identifier.
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier      "touchpad catchall"
            MatchProduct    "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Option          "VertTwoFingerScroll"   "on"
            Option          "EmulateTwoFingerMinW"  "8"
            Option          "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ"  "40"
    EndSection
    And that's all!
    ptosiani,
    You are exceptionally awesome. I can confirm this works in Ubuntu 10.10 (Asus 1201 netbook with synaptics touchpad). Thanks again for the perfect instructions. If done correctly this should only take a minute or two to do; you don't even need to restart.
